"... When students are actively involved in planning and implementing change, they become invested in the process. They become key stakeholders in improving education for themselves and their peers. We focus on technology as a vehicle for this, because technology is a powerful conduit for constructive, collaborative learning, and the connection that today’s youth feel for this new technology-driven world.
... Generation YES is a non-profit dedicated to creating tools for this kind of change – professional development, print materials and online tools to help students and teachers achieve these goals. In Generation YES schools, students learn how to teach, mentor, and lead as they use technology to help teachers, students and their community." from source: http://blog.genyes.org
